I would like to thank Stephanie Landau, President of the Parents’ Association, the members of our Parents’ Association Executive Board, and of course, Dr. Rodney DeJarnett, Head of School, for the thoroughly engaging day with best-selling authors, Julie Lythcott-Haims (How to Raise an Adult) and Jessica Lahey (The Gift of Failure).
Not only did their stories resonate with all audience members, ranging from their session with 5th grade students to faculty members to parents, but they also shared research-based evidence and strategies for changing the paradigm of how we can continue to raise wonderful human beings.
In the event that families were not able to join the evening presentation, the April Parent Forums will provide a venue to discuss some of the key points that both authors brought forth. Parents, Stephanie Landau and Jill Perin, will facilitate the discussions. Please see the listing below for the dates of the upcoming forums for grades K through 4.
- April 18 – Grades K, 1 and 2
- April 25 – Grades 3 and 4
